Connecting to mains sewage may be an option for you if there is a new sewerage system in your area. If so, you should have received notification from your local Water Authority, giving you the option to connect to the new sewerage system. Needless to say, this may have left you with a few questions.
One of the main questions you will probably have is who is going to pay for the new sewerage system? The Water Authority will pay for the sewerage system, however, if you decide that you want to connect to it, you will have to pay a sewer connection fee and often an infrastructure charge too. You will then pay annual sewerage charges to the Water Authority, and these typically vary based on individual properties. Finally, you will need to find a company providing drainage solutions that can carry out the work required to alter your drainage so that you can connect to the mains system. It is a good idea to compare a few quotes to understand how much this is going to cost. With these expenses to contend with, you may be wondering if it is worth connecting to the mains system. There are numerous benefits of doing so. This includes minimal maintenance, no problems with smells, no longer having to empty a cesspit or septic tank, increased property value and environmental benefits. You may be wondering if you can connect to the main’s system at a later date if you decide not to do so now. In most cases, you can, but it’s advisable to double check.
